We need to learn about Biblical prosperity in order to find out what the Bible can tell us about finding passion in our work, persevering through tough times, and embracing change. In other words, everything discussed so far in this website. The Bible is one of several sources that people turn to for spiritual guidance.
In the quest for this spiritual guidance we must remember that job loss is a temporary situation. When we are experiencing difficult circumstances, we need to respond with faith in order to work through our challenges. We can make good choices by listening to the wisdom that our faith brings to us. Biblical prosperity and all pertaining subject matter is mentioned several times in the bible.
"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" - Hebrews 11:1
When we have faith, we know that God will see us through any negative circumstances and help us get on the right tract. Faith is simply expecting God's blessings in our lives.
"Even though good people may be bothered by trouble seven times, they are never defeated".-Proverbs 24:16
"All things are possible to him that believeth" - Mark 9:23
"The Lord is my strength" - Psalm 28:7
Learning about spiritual abundance from the Bible can assist you with creating your new life. Use the guidance that is readily available to inspire divine ideas. Praying and listening to your inner voice will offer you insight to discovering your true calling - what God created you to do! And remember that He may have multiple purposes for your life, not just one. Biblical prosperity teaches us to listen to our intuition, which is how we hear God's messages. Be open to ideas and be prepare to act on them.
"Every morning he wakes me. He teaches me to listen like a student. The Lord God helps me learn." -Isiah 50:4-5
So what else does the Bible say about prosperity? There are many passages referring to spiritual abundance or Biblical prosperity. When they are all put together the message is clear - God wants us to prosper! We should never feel guilty about wanting to make money, as long as we have high ethical standards and morals. It is our divine inheritance.
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." -Matthew 6:33
That inner voice you hear, or the desire to follow a certain path is God wanting you to prosper. He gave us all special talents in order to find our passion, or purpose in life. In the same way that any father wants what is best for his children, God wants what is best for each one of us. Consider some of the following passages to show what God wants for us:
"It is your Fathers good pleasure to give you the Kingdom"-Luke 12:32
"Your Father knows what you need before you ask Him" -Matthew 6:8
But we still need to ask in order to receive.
"Hard work means prosperity; only fools idle away their time." -Proverbs 12:11
"God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance." -2 Corinthians 9:8
If you have recently experienced job loss, you may have some doubts about God's intention for good in your life. Biblical prosperity teaches us that in addition to having faith, it may also help to know that there are often divine reasons for your difficult circumstances. Sometimes we need motivation! It may be necessary for a "kick in the pants" to get us moving. Many of us would stay in a dead-end job without something drastic causing us to move on. Even though we may dream of pursuing our true calling, we don't always act on it unless forced to do so. Sometimes God brings situations into our lives so we will find His purpose for us.
There are many teachings in the Bible about prosperity and financial freedom. One of the most important divine laws of abundance is that you need to give in order to receive. There are many forms of giving. One example referred to in this divine law is the giving of service in exchange for an earned wage. That's why it's so important to give your very best! If you make a mediocre attempt in your work, you will receive a mediocre salary. Always give your absolute best and good will come back to you - not always immediately, it may take time before you see it which is where faith comes in. Giving and receiving can also be in the form of time, money, love, compassion, etc. In other words you get what you give!
Gratitude is another very important teaching of Biblical prosperity. We should always give thanks for our blessings and even for our trying circumstances. Give thanks for the lessons learned and the opportunities presented from your job loss. Having a constant sense of gratitude makes us aware of all that God has done for us.
"Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens." -1 Thessalonians 5:16
"Sing praises to the Lord, for He has done gloriously; let this be known in all the earth." -Isaiah 12:5
If we really look there is so much to be thankful for! Besides showing gratitude towards God, remember to express thankfulness to others. This can be done by simply showing kindness in words or actions, a smile or a written note of appreciation.
"Be thankful." -Colossians 3:15
I hope this section on Biblical prosperity is inspirational. There are many teachings in the Bible beyond the few passages on this page which refer to abundance and God's plan for us. Remember to always look for the lesson during trying times and use it to move ahead to a more prosperous life! Once you find that you love your work and it gives you joy, then you are on the right track.
